Suns’ Deandre Ayton invites all the rookies to his future wedding
While taking photos at the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, Ayton was in a playful mood, grabbing a mic in between shots to sing along to Ella Mai’s radio hit “Boo’d Up.”
While dancing and doing his best to hit the right notes, Ayton threw out a surprise invitation to all the rookies present, announcing that all present would be welcome to attend his future wedding.

While nothing has been made official, perhaps Ayton is eyeing a date to pop the question to his college sweetheart, Anissa Evans, who was present when he was picked No. 1 overall by the Suns in the 2018 NBA Draft.
The 7-footer from the Bahamas is looking to live up to the expectations of a top pick and build off an excellent college season with Arizona, where he averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game while shooting a remarkable 61.2 percent from the field.
Ayton will be paired with another rising star in Devin Booker, and the duo looks to form a formidable one-two punch off the pick-and-roll. If they can mesh, NBA defenses better watch out.
Ayton has a lot to live up to, but his calm and laid-back demeanor suggests that he is ready and willing to take on the challenges of NBA basketball. Let’s just hope that he swaps that microphone for a basketball before our ears start bleeding.
